InflowWind

A module for reading and interpolating wind inflow files

by Andrew Platt and Bonnie Jonkman
National Wind Technology Center

InflowWind is a module for processing wind-inflow data. It has been coupled into the FAST version 8 multi-physics engineering tool to enable aero-elastic simulation of horizontal-axis wind turbines. InflowWind can also be driven as a standalone code to process wind-inflow data uncoupled from FAST. If you are using FAST 7 or earlier, you will need InflowWind v1, which is available here.
